  • 10. WHAT IS INNOVATION?• The process by which an idea or invention is translated into a good or service forwhich people pay or something that results from this process• To be called an Innovation an idea must be replicable at an economical cost and mustsatisfy a specific need• 2 types of innovation: • Evolutionary Innovations: Brought about by gradual changes in technology or processes and have 2 types: • Continuous Evolutionary Innovations – result in alternations in a product or process characteristic instead of NEW product, e.g. Laptop computers, fluoride toothpaste • Dynamic Continuous Evolutionary Innovation – requires some user-learning, but does not disrupt his/her routine • Revolutionary Innovations: Require a good deal of user-learning, often disrupt routine, create new behaviours, e.g. Photocopier, personal computers, internet. Greater RISK taking, NEW Product, hence10 NEW markets
  • 12. FATHER OF INNOVATION....?• “We used to dream about the stuff, know we get tobuild it, its pretty neat….”• “We are gambling on our vision, and we would rather do that than make ‘me to’ products……”• “Its more fun to be a ‘pirate’ than to join the navy……”• “And 1 more thing........”• “I think if you do something and its turning out pretty good, then you shouldgo do something else wonderful, not dwell on it to long, just figure out what’snext..” 12

  • 16. SESSION 1: Stimulating the Innovative Creative Juices
  • 17. 1. BackgroundYOUR CREATIVE FORCE: AN UNTAPPED POTENTIAL • I define Creative Force as the power to create that flows through all of us!!!!! • Some people, creativity is a rare skill, but in my experience we all can and have a creative being waiting to explode in each one of us….TAP INTO THIS AS A TEAM/GROUP • Creativity is NOT about games or play, it must be approached with respect – because it is a powerful thing – perhaps the most powerful thing • When you use your natural creative power to innovate in your own life or to bring innovations to the lives of others, you’re quite capable of changing our world 17

  • 28. SESSION 2: Competitor Analysis in a Competitive Environment
  • 29. 1. BackgroundNEW PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT IN A COMPETITIVE ENVORONMENT • Managing NPD in a dynamic environment is a complex task • Using a competitor to make more informed decisions around NPD/Innovation • NEW product launch and later more ADVANCED • In a highly competitive market banks can adopt different technologies/products & use TIMING to mitigate the risk of price competition • Banks can invest in advanced technologies/products to influence a rivals choice – 1st to market • Must explore product flexibility, if NEW product fails, then resort to OLDER one • Introducing a NEW product in a any competitive industry is difficult • In competitive industries (financial services), product introduction timing is a function of external factors like market conditions and industry clock-speed • Timing is KEY or banks lose market share • SHOP the competition, COMPETITOR MATRIX 29
  • 30. 1. BackgroundNEW PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT IN A COMPETITIVE ENVORONMENT • It is important to understand the competitive market insights through ongoing research • Without market intelligence, it is challenging for banks to react appropriately and competitively • Leadership must understand that: • Market segments in which they operate • Every customer type (buyer, user, influencer, or decision maker) • Changing preferences of various customer types • Industry environment in which banks operate • Each and every competitor in the industry and how each product is positioned against each competitors product • Undertake some sort of PESTEL analysis, as this will provide impetus for strategic decision and spend on growth/products • Undertake a SWOT analysis of your products vs. the competitors 30

  • 34. 1. BackgroundCOMPETITIVE PRODUCT EVALUATION • Competitive evaluations will help determine: • Products & costs in the market • Quality of products available • How to measure those products MOST COMPARABLE………BEST OF BRANDS………AVAILABILITY OF PRODUCTS……..PRODUCT SERVICES AVAILABLE……..COSTS OF PRODUCT/S 34
  • 35. 1. BackgroundCOMPETITIVE POSITIONING 35
  • 36. 1. BackgroundCOMPETITOR STRATEGY COST LEADER • Firms goal is lowest price • Source of cost advantage must be fully exploited • Above average performer on products DIFFERENTIATED • In differentiated strategy firms LEADER seek to be unique • It selects 1 or more attributes that buyers want and uniquely positions itself to meet this • Uniqueness attracts premium price FOCUS LEADER • Focus on narrow & competitive industry • Firm selects a segment or group of segments in industry and tailor makes solution 36
  • 38. 1. BackgroundRETAIL BANKING A REALITY The traditional retail bank is at an inflection point. The needs and expectations of customers are changing as quickly as the competition. Customers are demanding seamless, multi- channels, with better products and services. Simultaneously, other financial institutions and non-traditional players are looking for opportunities to invade this space or to redefine it through disruptive innovation. The result is forcing banks to examine a more balanced, integrated approach to product management and innovation, to ensure sustained growth 38
  • 40. 1. BackgroundTHE CHANGING FACE OF BANKING In view of several developments in the 1990’s, the banking industry is changing … Global banking more competitive The IT revolution Information explosion Rationalisation of branches in 1990’s Banks are trying to become one-stop financial supermarkets How did banks respond? o Distribute more PRODUCTS & SERVICES through other ways and channels … o … proliferation of non-traditional banking channels

  • 42. VIDEO: BANKING 2.0
  • 43. 1. BackgroundRAISING THE GAME IN RETAIL BANKING Booz Allen’s research shows there are clear opportunities to enhance revenue in retail banking. Going forward retail banks need to be INNOVATIVE, thro: o Provide dedicated channels (website, call centre, mobile sales forces and specialist areas in branches) for affluent customers. o Reduce waiting times in branches through the use of welcome desks (concierge concept) and the option of making appointments in advance. o Efficient call centre menus and staffing that enable customers to quickly reach people who can resolve their queries. o Enable customers to tailor websites, supported by strong security measures (e.g. random number generators). o Offer mobile sales advisers who can complete transactions at the meeting, for selected customer groups o Products that are understandable and easier to transact Source: Reference Booz/Allen/Hamilton - Striving for Growth, Best Practices in Retail Banking Sales and Service Channels 43
  • 44. 1. BackgroundTHE 6 DYNAMICS CUSTOMER FOCUS In the EVOLUTION of retail banking channels, the 6 dynamics are critical to developing effective CUSTOMER FOCUSED strategies: • Branch generated revenue growth is becoming more challenging • Transaction processing and customer services are becoming increasingly independent of the branch channel • Customer demographics are shifting • New technologies are gaining widespread adoption, allowing customer relationship management to become channel independent • Changes in the regulatory environment are altering the playing fields • Banks must prepared for overlapping competition (Non-Banking Entities) •Innovative Products & Services from competitors

  • 46. SESSION 3: Financial, Pricing & Risk Analysis for New Products
  • 47. 1. BackgroundFINANCIAL ANALYSIS  Product performance and financial analysis, thereof is critical to make an informed decision/s  Historical data is key together with REAL market facts  Analysis of future scenarios is also KEY – FINANCIAL FORECASTS – short & long-term  About estimating sales volumes  About estimating direct and indirect costs  Ultimately the profitability  Ultimately the market share position of the product line/s  Must have product level overview of financial performance  Product Mangers must have complete accountability for the P/L of product/s  Product Managers must understand the financial implications to make informed decisions  Identify the most profitable and unprofitable customers  Understand the ‘Drivers’ of revenue performance  Use financial analysis to understand competitors 47
  • 48. 1. BackgroundFINANCIAL ANALYSIS: PRODUCT SALES ANALYSIS  Defined as, “ gathering, classifying, comparing and study of company sales data”  Sales analysis is a powerful tool  Major components of Sales Analysis:  How are sales defined  In what units can sales be analysed  In what category can sales data be placed  What are the appropriate standards in which sales can be compared?  Some of the Pitfalls:  IT systems are NOT designed by Product Managers  Financial Managers have different mindsets  Lack of understanding of all cost related to a product/s  Lack of understanding of proper financial forecasting  Predictive analysis  Lack of proper internal marketing by PM 48
  • 49. 1. BackgroundFINANCIAL ANALYSIS: AN EXAMPLE  Financial Model  Assumptions  Income of the Product  Direct Costs  Indirect Costs  5 Year Forecasts  NAV  ROI 49
  • 50. 1. BackgroundPRICING STRATEGY MUST FIND WAYS TO DRIVE DOWN COSTS AND OFFER LOWER PRICES OR EXPLORE CREATIVE WAYS TO ATTRACT, RETAIN AND GROW YOUR CUSTOMER BASE, E.G. OFFERING LOYALTY PROGRAMS, VALUE ADDED SERVICES, INNOVATIVE WARRANTIES Cost Based: • Fixed Costs PRICE FOR PROFIT • Cost plus mark-up • Still widely used • Makes it easier to predict profit margins Customer Focused: • Penetrating pricing, e.g. “Special Introductory Offer” • Used to encourage customers to switch to your product PRICE FOR RELATIONSHIP • Associated with marketing strategy to increase market share/sales volumes • Price skimming, charge high prices before competitor enters, e.g. LCD TV’s in early 2000’s Competitive Pricing: • Set price similar to competitors PRICE FOR DEFENDING YOUR POSITION • Differentiated strategy • How thro VAS 50
  • 51. 1. BackgroundRISK MANGEMENT  Innovation entails RISK at any point or juncture, so invest in R&D as part of business objective  If you are NOT innovate it is construed as putting your organization or business at risk  As a leader or manager you must be alert to the following:  Technological changes can blindside you so keep abreast of these changes in technology  Financial investments can turn into RISKY investments if a project/product proves to be too costly  Protect your idea or IP  Manage your business product line tightly  An attitude of being the BEST can be a RISK, as you become complacent and may drop the BALL on innovation or product lines 51
  • 52. SESSION 4: Segmentation
  • 54. OVERVIEW CHICKEN or THE EGG…  Chicken or the Egg scenario, which comes first Strategy or Segmentation?  Customer segmentation is the practice of dividing a customer base into groups of individuals that are similar in specific ways relevant to marketing, such as age, gender, interests, spending habits, and so on. Using segmentation allows banks to target groups effectively, and allocate marketing resources to best effect  Traditional segmentation focuses on identifying customer groups based on demographics and attributes such as attitude and psychological profiles  Value-based segmentation, on the other hand, looks at groups of customers in terms of the revenue they generate and the costs of establishing and maintaining relationships with them  Customer segmentation procedures include:  deciding what data will be collected and how it will be gathered;  collecting data and integrating data from various sources;  developing methods of data analysis for segmentation;  establishing effective communication among relevant business units (such as marketing and customer service) about the segmentation; and  implementing applications to effectively deal with the data and respond to the information it provides 54

  • 116. SESSION 1: New Product Development Process
  • 117. 1. BackgroundNEW PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT PROCESS • Firstly, introducing NEW products is critical to the success of any organization and including Banks • Product Managers should follow a set process when implementing NEW products • The 7 step process will comprise the KEY elements of new product development • These steps are crucial to help make informed decisions • The process also shows the importance of market research plays in developing and shaping NEW product development 117
  • 118. 1. BackgroundPRODUCT DEVELOPMENT PROCESS STEPS 1-3 STEP 1: THE IDEA GENERATION • Requiring the gathering of ideas to be evaluated as potential product options • Must be an ongoing process with contributions from internal & external sources • Many market research are used to gather ideas, e.g. focus groups, channel members, Banks sales staff, customer comments, etc • Gaining insight on competitor products through secondary data sources • One important research technique used to generate ideas is brain storming where creative thinkers from inside and outside share ideas • Remember it is important to table many ideas as this will SPARK THE IDEA • Also use Mind-Mapping to set out product development STEP 2: SCREENING • Ideas generated are evaluated against feasibility • Screening can be done in hierarchal rounds involving the CEO, CFO, COO etc, on the feasibility of NEW product • Detailed screening will be followed through advanced research techniques • Once an idea/s are tabled, do a ROUGH ESTIMATE on SALES, COSTS, PROFIT, MARKET SHARE, CUSTOMER NUMBERS • Once an idea is accepted move onto step 3 118
  • 119. 1. BackgroundPRODUCT DEVELOPMENT PROCESS STEPS 1-3 STEP 3: THE IDEA GENERATION • Focus groups are convened where the product idea is presented to a group in the form of a CONCEPT BOARD PRESENTATION (i.e. story board) • EG, customers are shown the concept board depicting drawings of the product idea or can present a mock-up version that is NOT functional • Here you must get feedback from the customer segment on the likes and dislikes of the product in terms of the PRICE, PACKAGING, FEATURES, EASE OF USE, etc • IOW, you want feedback if the customer will buy the product and frequency thereof 119
  • 120. 1. BackgroundPRODUCT DEVELOPMENT PROCESS STEPS 4-5 STEP 4: THE IDEA GENERATION • At this stage the product idea has been narrowed down to 1-2-3 etc • More important is market research as efforts are made to analyze viability of product idea • Key objective, to obtain useful forecasts of market size, costs, sales volumes, financial projections, etc • Key objective to ascertain if overall product fits into the companies overall mission/vision (balanced scorecard) • Emphasis on external research, surveys, secondary research, competitor analysis • Emphasis on internal research, historical data, customer data, segment data STEP 5: PRODUCTION & MARKETING MIX DEVELOPMENT • Initial prototype of the product emerges • Start developing the marketing mix strategy, 4P’s • Get feedback/insight from customers as they will have a ‘live’ product • Customer feedback will help refine product and marketing mix before launch • Refine the marketing mix • Yippeeeee…FINALLY…..WE LAUNCH…..4/3/2/1… 120
  • 121. 1. BackgroundPRODUCT DEVELOPMENT PROCESS STEPS 6-7 STEP 6: MARKET TESTING • Can go straight to commercialization or • Restrict the launch to a smaller geographical area & target segment • Many ways: • Simulation • Build a live test site STEP 7: COMMERCIALISATION • Launch to a wider audience • Roll-out strategy • Phased approach so as to ensure production is controlled and relevant changes to the marketing mix 121

  • 123. 1. BackgroundSOME CASE STUDIES CASE STUDIES: 1. Case Study 1 2. Case Study 2 3. Case Study 3 123
  • 124. SESSION 3: Packaging the NEW Product
  • 125. 1. BackgroundPACKAGING THE NEW PRODUCT: THE LAUNCH • So we have done our homework through the Product Development Process • NOTE: Many NEW products are launched daily, so competition out there is stiff!!!! • So think carefully of your LAUNCH STRATEGY: Study the Competitors • Look at the competitors, SWOT analysis • Review their marketing strategy • List the banks that offer the product or service • Put yourself in the customer shoes…ask questions, WHY choose your product????? • What will attract the customer to take up the product or service???? • Evaluate HOW your product will stand out from the competition, WHAT WILL YOUR PRODUCT UNIQUE 125
  • 126. 1. BackgroundPACKAGING THE NEW PRODUCT: THE LAUNCH • One of biggest pitfalls is we do NOT target the ‘RIGHT’ customer, hence we spend a lot of money on futile marketing and sales activities Target the Ideal Customer • Focus on segment that will buy or take up the product or service • This will minimize the financial burdens on already extended budgets • These can be customers that already buy a similar product & the additional features will benefit them • Its easier to a fill a need than create one 126
  • 127. 1. BackgroundPACKAGING THE NEW PRODUCT: THE LAUNCH • Your Unique Selling Proposition must be KEY in the very competitive market Create a Unique Value Proposition • You must STAND OUT from your competitors • Be clear on the message you project on the FEATURES & BENEFITS • Value Added Services are synonymous with a clear defined USP • Reality your product or service must be UNIQUE enough and meets the NEEDS of the prospective target market • STAND OUT IN WHATEVER YOU DO AND PROJECT TO THE CUSTOMER 127
  • 128. 1. BackgroundPACKAGING THE NEW PRODUCT: THE LAUNCH • Critical in choosing RIGHT CHANNEL to sell or market product/service Create a Unique Value Proposition • Multi-channel approach is GOOD as many customers will use variety of channels to access product or service • Decide on which channel best suits the strategy, eg. ATM’s, CC, Emails, SMS, Mobile, etc • Suppose you are marketing a product to the lower end of the segment, you can use the ff channels: • DSA’s • Mobile • SMS notification • 3rd Party Agents • Bill boards • Radio/TV media 128
  • 129. 1. BackgroundPACKAGING THE NEW PRODUCT: THE LAUNCH • One of the most critical phases Roll-out • PR & Group Communication is critical • Its about the message and readiness • Ensure the product or service ready • Create launch events, Internally to Staff & Externally to customers • Ensure proper distribution • Ensure proper staff training and product info is readily available to ALL • CONSUMER EDUCATION IS KEY 129
  • 130. 1. BackgroundPACKAGING THE NEW PRODUCT: THE LAUNCH • The or if NOT most important consideration in any product Product Lifecycle • Keep the product FRESH • Keep the product ALIVE • Keep the product abreast of changes in the competitive landscape • Create NEW re-launches • Create more VAS • Bring on PARTNERS for increased services or reach • ULTIMATELY CREATE THE CUSTOMER STICKINESS 130
